Sledding at the Pass
Generally we go sledding at the golf course. It has a long hill and you can cross country ski at the same time. But if we want a STEEP hill and REALLY fast sledding we go to the pass. Only on that hill there is no skiing down in skinny cross country skiis!
On Sunday it was fast enough that I was even thinking that just perhaps, you know maybe, we should have been wearing helmets. Most of the time, half way down the hill the sleds would turn sideways and we'd wipe out. To make it to the bottom you had to either balance and weight the sled perfectly or drags your hands and steer.
At the bottom there is a big berm to keep everyone from sledding out onto the road, and if the sled made it that far it would go straight up and dump everyone out. It was a good time.
